First official Picks for Miss United Continents 2016

Miss United Continents is one of the fastest growing pageants. This is the fourth edition of the pageant based in Ecuador since it was changed from Miss United Americas to Miss United Continents. Nathalia Lago of Brazil will Crown her successor on September 24th in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Analysing the candidates, We believe the competition is very fierce this year and we might see an Non Latin American girl take the crown for the first time. Asians, Europeans and Africans are showing deep interest in winning this pageant and this can be a rewarding year for them, India’s Lopamudra Raut and Ukraine’s Marina Demitska can easily be the flag bearer for Asian and Europeans respectively. However,  Brazilian Taynara will give her best to claim a back to back victory for Brazil. Chances for Panama and Puerto Rico can also not be ignored.
At this point of time India is leading our list followed by Panama and Brazil is on the third spot. Puerto Rico, Ukraine and Dominican Republic complete the TOP06 and Philippines, Colombia, South Africa and United Kingdom completes our TOP 10 list of favourites for Miss United Continents 2016.

Mudit – I am a complete Delhite – born and brought up here. A graduate in advertising from Delhi university, I have always been a people’s person. My passion for modelling soon had me handling the fashion society of my college. This is when I won my first title, Mr. Delhi Times, organised by the The Times of India. There was no looking back from there. I started working as a model in Delhi and later shifted my base to Mumbai where I took up assignments for ads and prints.

05) What inspired you to Join Rubaru Mr India?

06) “Stop Violence against women” is the cause, Rubaru Group is associated with, what’s your take on the Security of Women in India? How can you contribute to the cause?

Mudit – The cause is personally  very close to my heart and resonates with me.  I feel that we are in an era where women are at par with men hence there is an acute need to tackle gender inequality as the key driver of violence against women. The society needs to build preventive measures in order to stop violence against women. The first step is to identify and address instead of letting go and it’s a very touchy subject people don’t want to talk about. It is imperative to educate the youth of the nation and promote gender equality. What’s missing is leadership. We need to create leaders who can stand up and raise their voice against heinous acts. when we talk about violence against women, more often than never these act of violence starts with a first hand experience at one’s own home. So the change needs to start from home. As men, we should respect our women and treat them nicely.

07) Misters From Rubaru have performed amazingly well at the various international Pageants in previous years? Does it Adds any performance pressure or Motivates you Someway?

Mudit – I appreciate the pool of talent that we have in our country and I drive my inspiration from each one of them. They surely motivate me and their experience have helped me improve and better myself.

08) Being a Mr India, you will always be looked up for your fashion quotient and your Fashion sense will be under strict scrutiny, What Does fashion Means to you ?

Mudit – Fashion is all about expressing one’s true self. It speaks a thousands words, tells about one’s choices, priorities etc. While for some people it is overrated, but for me it’s about my identity.
